Hey guys! Hope you had a great weekend!

The weather was beautiful here so we spent a lot of time outside.

Friday I had my baby shower! The girls from work wanted to wait until Jett was born to throw me a party and it was so nice to see everyone! It was such a treat to interact with people that can actually talk back 😉

Jett and I got so many amazing thoughtful gifts ♥

[I wish they made that dress in my size!]

After everyone left I hung out with Jett while Andrew made supper. 

Buddah burger with Vegenaise, mustard, pickles, tomato and lettuce, yam with salsa and feta and caesar salad with lots of avocado

Saturday morning we took Jett and Beasley for a nice long walk along the river.

As Jett is getting older she is getting so much more alert and doesn’t like to be strapped down in her stroller. The past three walks we have had to take her out and carry her. She just likes to look at everything! 

We spent the day shopping yesterday [Andrew needed new clothes] and went and visited with his parents and nephew Jaxon. When we got home Andrew made the most delicious supper! Andrew usually makes supper because Jett usually wants to eat as soon as she smells food 😉

ezekiel wrap with tomato paste + spices, sautéed fennel and yellow peppers, crumbled Field Roast smoked apple sage veggie sausage and grated goat cheese and a salad with spring greens, roasted pecans, cranberries, avocado and fennel and peppers with balsamic dressing 

I’ve been eating the same smoothie for breakfast all week. Today was no exception:

I found the recipe on The Green Lean Bean and added strawberries like Lauren did. I looove the coconut water and goji berries in this! 

After breakfast we headed to our Bradley Method class reunion! There were 9 couples in our class and now that everyone has had their babies we decided to get together and have a potluck brunch and a play date 🙂

Prego before pic:

After baby pic:

There were five girls and four boys. Eight natural births and one c-section. Nine healthy, happy babies 🙂

[Jett’s skirt kept riding up so we just let her hang out in her diaper]

After the reunion we came home and Jett and I had a looong nap. Best.feeling.ever. I woke up feeling completely refreshed – naps don’t happen here very often – and HUNGRY! Thankfully we brought home leftovers from the potluck:

quinoa mac n’ cheese with red pepper and broccoli, mixed greens with avocado, feta and balsamic dressing

And a raw chocolate macaroon for dessert ♥

 

It is definitely time for bed! Night!

Tell me…

Something about your weekend! Did you do anything fun? Eat anything delicious?? Fill me in 🙂

 

Tonight’s supper has been brought to you by the letter

When I was younger, my friend Shannon and her family would have me over for a sleepover almost every Friday. They would call it pizza, Pepsi and Paije night.

I’m bringing it back! Well, the modified version….

Heeey monsters!!

Did you guys have a good weekend??

I’ve been loving reading all the recaps of the Foodbuzz festival!! I have definite shwag bag envy 😉

I had a nice little Sunday. The entire house is clean, all the laundry is done, the pups have been walked, I went for a 30 minute jog and now I get to “talk” to you guys! All I have left to do is meal plan and get some groceries tomorrow and I am completely caught up on my to-do list.

I was trying to post during my night shifts but for some reason my pictures got deleted! Lameballs.

I have pretty much been eating two things for the last 5 days. One of which is EPIC.

Macatastic Smoothie

serves 1

1 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk

1 frozen banana

1/2 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 tbsp raw maca powder

1 tsp flax oil

1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder

3 ice cubes (more if you’re not using a frozen banana)

Mix all ingredients in the Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth.

Slurrrrrrrrrp!

I have also been obsessed with caprese pita pizzas. I probably would of made another one tonight if I wasn’t out of basil.

Caprese Pizza

serves 1

1 whole grain pita

tomato paste, as much as you like

italian spices

2 cloves roasted garlic

baby tomatoes, sliced

10 bocchini balls, sliced in quarters

fresh basil

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F. Spread tomato paste on pita and top with roasted garlic and italian spices. Place tomatoes, cheese and basil on as well and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is browned.

I switched up my meals tonight but only to get rid of some leftovers in the fridge.

Because I slept in until noon, I had a macatastic smoothie for breakfast while cleaning and skipped lunch. 😦 By supper time, I was sttaaaarving. This was full of carbs and veggies. The besssssssst.

I had a massaged kale salad with baby tomatoes

leftover mushroom and barley burger on 1/2 a sandwich thin with laughing cow and mustard

steamed broccoli

and ww spaghettini with butternut squash pasta sauce and vegan parm

Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

serves 6-8 (maybe more maybe less)

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 cups butternut squash, steamed until soft

1 red onion, diced

3 medium carrots, thinly sliced

3 stalks of celery, chopped

1/2 red pepper, diced

1/2 zucchini, diced

1 bulb roasted garlic

1 5.5 oz can of herbs & spices tomato paste

1/2 cup water (or veggie stock)

italian spices

salt and pepper

Directions

Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Add onion, celery, red pepper, and carrots. Stirfry until veggies are semi-soft. Add zucchini and cook for about 5 more minutes. Next add steamed squash, garlic, tomato paste, water, spices, salt and pepper. Simmer on medium heat until veggies are very soft. Place sauce in Vitamix, blender or food processor and until smooooooth. Pour back into pan, adjust seasonings, add more water if necessary to thin out and heat through. Serve on top of pasta or veggies. Pour extra into a jar and store in the refrigerator.

Leftovers are even better.

Do you think three recipes for one night is enough? 🙂 I doooooo!!

It’s time for Boardwalk Empire!!

Night night kittens!

Hi! How is everyone?? Hopefully you’re having a really good weekend. Mine has been going just fine. Did you celebrate Earth Hour tonight?? We sure did! We shut all of our lights off, took Beasley for a walk (his 2nd one today 😉 ) and then came home, lit some candles and shared the So Delicious coconut milk vanilla bean icecream I bought the other day.

This is my third year participating and it just warms my lame little heart how many people do this. The Sydney Opera House and the Great Pyramids of Giza even shut off their lights!

Our living room all lit up, missing the two boys

please don't mind the off center rug

What kind of things do you do to help the earth? We do small things everyday like use cold water to wash our clothes, use reusable grocery bags and sandwich bags, unplugging appliances when we aren’t using them, and recycling as much as possible! And in the summer we compost 🙂

✻✻✻

Backtracking to yesterday.

B-fast

Three egg whites, goat cheese, 1/4 of an avocado, chopped tomato, dill and an apple.

We had a popcorn night at work (cuz my new supervisor is so cool) and she brought her air popper, I brought some popcorn and another girl brought a bunch of popcorn seasonings. I OVERLOADED myself with delicious popcorn. It was crazy.

I only took one picture of what I took for lunch last night. I didn’t think you needed to see another bowl of potato salad or another wrap so I left them out. Andrew made a quesadilla and left me half to take to work. It was curry ish and awesome.

Work was busy busy busy last night!! Ugh. Sometimes I wish crime would take a vacay LOL. But then I guess I wouldn’t have a job, right? 😉

B-fast today was oatmeal with chia, raisons, blackberries, honey, quinoa maple cereal and almond milk. Weird, I know. I had a craving for all of those things and they tasted decee together.

and a smoothie

made with this

I knew we were having pizza at Andrew’s brother’s house tonight so I had a small meal so I wouldn’t go overboard once I got there. My brother dropped off some soup he made – butternut squash, pumpkin, carrots, cloves and curry – and DAMN! Sooo yummy!! I had it with a smear of goat cheese and whole wheat wrap.

I still managed to have 2 1/2 pieces of veggie pizza 🙂

Time for bed! Or time to have another snack?? Hahaha probably a little bit of both. See you guys tomorrow!!! BYYYYYYE!!

Paije xx

PS. The dreamy Michael Buble is on SNL tonight!!! ♥
